1) I pressed the "typeset" button at least ten times and still see no  
index list in my pdf file. How many time did you compile the input  
file to get the index?

2) I assume that "when the pdflatex compiles" means "when the typeset  
button is pressed (in the toolbar of the input file)." Is this correct?
